Health Minister Greg Hunt says this last week has been a “record vaccination week”, with 1.18 million people coming forward to be vaccinated.

Mr Hunt says there’s updated ATAGI advice which says 12-15-year-olds who are immuno-compromised, or have underlying medical conditions, or are Indigenous or live in regional communities will be eligible for the Pfizer vaccine.

This is set to commence as of 9 August, although if any GP wishes to administer before then, then it is free for them, or states, to do so.
